Subject: Re: [iris-photos] In Flight not
sure whether this is an IB, MTB or TB ??
IN FLIGHT is a small bloomed TB
much like Paul Black's DOLCE. It is out of aphylla a few
generations back. As it exceeds the height for an IB or BB it had to be
classified as a TB. Some gardener's find these smaller iris are
excellent for use in flower arranging and the rarely fall over in 'less than
desireable' weather conditions.
Not everyone wants an outsized bloom
that needs stakeing in order to remain upright. We often have rain during the
bloom season and most TB's fall over from the weight of rain on the open
blooms. IN FLIGHT does not.
